MW Musical Formatting Guide – Script




The Formatting Guide for Musical Scripts was created to provide clear, easy-to-follow instructions on presenting your musical professionally and according to the most widely accepted industry standards.

The suggestions in this guide are based on industry standards and formatting requests set forth by Samuel French, NAMT, ANMT, ASCAP, SheNYC, and others. Not only will following this musical formatting guide help your work look more professional when submitting to contests, festivals, theaters, and producers, but it will also make preparation and rehearsals much easier on your actors, musicians and directors, et al.

Prefer to have a pro format your script for you? Check out our Script Formatting Service.
